Masterclass with Morgan Doyle

Painterly Printmaking

Mono printing from metal - "The layering process which changes what we see, the very simple process of print and the complexity of art."

Master class with Morgan Doyle.

Assisted by Colin Gale director of Artichoke

Includes a final day criteria and discussion of the work produced.

It will be very much the way Morgan makes his work - a combination of techniques and layering which can include etching mono printing chine colle plus manual additions. The course is very much aimed at inspiring a free creative approach combining the advantages of painting and printmaking. We both have the view that many printmakers become trapped by techniques inhibiting their natural creative instincts, this course is designed to break past the technical barriers and work spontaneously and freely.

A two day course.
